Keep those updates coming homey. Curious to hear how Soto, Grandal and a few others like Campbell and Boxberger (if he gets in the game) look. Carolina could have a decent second half now that they're healthy and have a real roster.

Bats now lead the Tigers AAA affiliate, Toledo Mudhens, 8-2 in the top 5th. Juan Francisco is 2-3 with a double and 2-run HR (his 8th of he year) and Danny Dorn hit his 13th HR of the season. Mesoraco is 1-3 with an rbi double and Cozart 1-3 at this point.

Denis Phipps is 4 for 4 tonight, a HR short of the cycle. Carolina's tied 4-4 in the seventh.

Neftali Soto hits a 2-run, no-out HR in the tenth to win it for Carolina, 6-4. They're playing much better. In spite of Donnie Joseph's troubles last night, the bullpen is looking decent and deep.

Dayton has scored two in the sixth to tie Bowling Green, 3-3. Kyle Lotzkar: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. Hamilton and Lutz are 2 for 3.

19-year-old Abel de los Santos is starting tonight for the AZL Reds. He could be a pitcher of interest, I believe. Last year in the DSL: 9-1 with a 1.85 in 77.2 IP. Not a huge K guy (63), but the league hit .185 against him.

Dayton will take a 4-3 lead into the ninth. Luca Panerati pitched a scoreless 2.1 innings.

BTW: Duran left that game early.

Not a good first for de los Santos. It's 2-2.

The AZL Reds have a guy batting third and playing LF whom I've never heard of: Spencer Dickinson. He's 21. And he was just called out on strikes.

Brandon Dailey had a bunt single. Like.

Juan Perez is playing SS and hitting .583, with, of course, a massive sample size.

Boxberger was dominant tonight. If anybody has a ticket to Louisville it is Mr. Boxberger.

I had to leave the game early. I was very mad that that I missed it.

I'd like to mention that Denis Phipps currently has the highest BA on the team. I mention this because I have not hesitated to point out his struggles as well. The guy was 4-4 last night and his in a nice groove roght now. In the month of June, Phipps he is hitting above 400. This team has needed a reliable lead off hitter for most of the year. When Berry left the line up it was big that Phipps stepped up.

I made it a point to move down and get a seat immediately behind the Mudcats bullpen bench the last several innings of the game last night. My primary interest there was Donnie Joseph. I know the Friday night implosian is killing the kid after all the incremental progress he had made the past month or so. As the game went down to the final inning or so he got up and grabbed a ball and had Skelton catch him for a dozen or so pitches. He'd sit down for a minute or so and get back up. While sitting, he must have removed his hat, stared into it, and put it back on 20 times in about 10 minutes time. It bordered on comical toward the end. It was obvious the guy was nervous energy at this point. He was back on the mound throwing to Skelton when Soto turned the lights out. I'd really like to see him eliminate the really bad outings. I imagine if the opportunity arises, Bell will run him out there again today.

JC has always had the ability to strike guys out. I'm encouraged to see his 2011 BB/9 fall to 3.9 from 5.6 in 2010. In turn his K/BB in 2011 has jumped to 2.84 from 1.69. JC has always been an interesting prospect. If he can keep this going in 2011, I would expect a major jump in the Redszone prospect rankings this off-season.
